    Webinar: Finance Your Business with an SBA-Guaranteed Loan

    Location: Online

    Let the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Chatham University’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship (CWE), a Women’s Business Center (WBC) help grow your small business opportunity by attending this webinar.
    SBA-guaranteed loans can be used for a variety of business purposes, including starting or expanding an existing business. When a bank thinks your business is too risky to lend money, the SBA may guarantee your loan — that way the bank has less risk and could be more willing. Use Lender Match to find lenders who offer SBA-guaranteed loans.
